Jimmy,

I don’t have any plans for one, so I can’t help you there, but it sounds like you have an idea of how you would like it to look. Draw it out, post it on this site, and ask questions. There’s lots of people that will help you out. If you do, I’ll bet you end up with something you like better than what you will find with plans since this would be customized to you.

Coincidentally, there are plans and a good article on this in the most recent issue of Fine Woodworking. I was just looking at it this morning.

Requires a membership to read it online, or you can check out your local library.

I made this one without a drawer:

Just kind if winged it rather than following specific plans. I kind of wish I made it taller to accept standard 8.5×11 paper.

You could build one like this …

... but no plans.

The details are on my website: http://www.inthewoodshop.com/Furniture/Lapdesk.html
